Actian PSQL Review

Great advanced structures like arrays, native json, etc. but would like to see default drivers in JVMworld

What is most valuable?

Advanced structures like arrays, native json, etc.

How has it helped my organization?

We are using native json data type for statistics storage. Another way was to use something like MongoDB, but it would be too difficult to administer as we have too many other external products and services.

What needs improvement?

Default drivers in JVMworld

For how long have I used the solution?

About 3 years

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

No, it's really simple

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Only in dev environment with very small VMs (like 512mb RAM for PG and Neo4j)

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Not yet, we have not scaled.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service: There was no problem to ask customer service, so it's greatTechnical Support: I also don't know

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

MySQL is too poor in functionality, Oracle is too big slow and the price is not quite good. We are using Azure SQL but we' d prefer MySQL instead - it is good for .Net but not for JVM.

How was the initial setup?

It's documented quite well, so there was no problems.

What about the implementation team?

Both in-house and vendor.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

$0 initialy and another $0 running it

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

MySQL only, as we already had experience with Oracle and MSSQL.
